Romeo and Juliet by William ShakespeareTime and Fate in Romeo and JulietRomeo and Juliet, said to be one of the most famous love storiesof all times, is a play anchored on time and fate. Some actions arebelieved to occur by chance or by destiny. The timing of each actioninfluences the outcome of the play. While some events are of lesssignificance, some are crucial to the development of this tragedy. Thesubstantial events that inspire the conclusion of Romeo and Juliet are;the Capulet ball, the quarrel experienced by Tybalt and Romeo, and FriarJohn's plague.A servant to Capulet, who is incapable of reading the list ofguests, asks for Romeo's assistance. Romeo notices that Rosaline, hislover, is among these names. Benvolio challenges Romeo to compare herwith other "beauties." Benvolio predicts, "Compare her face with somethat I shall show,/ And I will make thee think thy swan a crow." (I, ii,l 86-87) To show his appreciation, the servant asks for Romeo's presenceat the ball. Romeo should have considered the servant's warning; ifRomeo occupies the name of Montague, he shall not be permitted. Once atthe ball, Romeo is searching for a maiden to substitute the unrequitedlove of Rosaline. Romeo happens to gaze upon Juliet, who charms Romeo.Romeo proclaims, " Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!/ Forne'er saw true beauty till this night." (I, v, l 52-53) Since Romeodeclares his love for Juliet, she feels the attraction also. Theybelieve that they are in love and must marry. However, it is a genuinecoincidence that Romeo and Juliet were at the same place, at the sametime.Some days after the ball, Benvolio and Mercutio are conversing,in regard to the quarrelsome weather. Benvolio declares, "The day ishot, the Capulets abroad,/ And if we meet we shall not 'scape a brawl,/For now these got days is the mad blood stirring." (III, i, l 2-4) Atthis point, Tybalt, who has challenged Romeo because of his appearanceat the masquerade, enters, seeking Romeo. On Romeo's behalf, Mercutiostruggles with Tybalt, while Romeo, who is filled with love for his newcousin, tries to end their boldness. Before escaping, Tybalt plungeshis sword into Mercutio, causing death to fall upon him. Mercutio blamesRomeo and the feud for his fate. Romeo kills Tybalt, who taunts Romeo,upon his return. Romeo fears he will be condemned to death if he doesnot flee before the arrival of the Prince. Benvolio recalls the eventsthat have happened, with some embellishment. The Prince declares:And for that offence/ Immediately we do exile him hence./ I hav an inyour hate's proceeding,/ My...
